Q.Hello, I Want To Plant A Bush (not Mounding) Olive Tree In A Pot That Could Grow To 6 Ft Tall. Is There A Variety Good For This?

I’m a snowbird and would like to plant a tree in a pot for some filtered light and really like the looks of the silver leaf olive trees. Can you recommend a few good varieties for this? Thank you.

I recommend you search online for dwarf olive trees, which don't necessarily produce fruit. One variety is "Little Ollie." An internet search will reveal several varieties, but we don't recommend specific vendors or retailers.
